Celebrity Coverage in the News
Through the vehicle of local press I have had the opportunity to report on international celebrities connected in a variety of ways to our local communities whether at charity events, book signings or public appearances. Past coverage includes Kathryn and Mary Crosby, Dame Zandra Rhodes, Prince William and Kate, Prince Harry, Jenny Craig, Shawn Colvin, Diane Keaton, Glenn Close, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Louise Harrison (sister of George Harrison), Alicia Gwynn, Dave Stewart, Marlee Matlin, Robert Whitaker, Hugh Hewitt, Betty Lou Phillips, and many local celebrated achievers in and around North County San Diego.
Since 2006 I have been a regular contributor to several magazines notably, Artworks Magazine, the Bishop's Alumni Magazine, Vintage Allies Magazine, Where San Diego Magazine, Pacific San Diego Magazine, and more. Featured articles include profiles on Dame Zandra Rhodes, fine artist Eleanor Antin, photographer Leslie Hoffman, the City Ballet of San Diego, artist Kim McConnell, master portrait artist Jennifer Chapman and more.
